Mr Parry was returning from Holyhead. where he had j tined the Welsh demonstration to welcome Mr T. D. Sullivan, M.P., ex-Lord Mayor of Dublin, and in driv ing towards borne the horse, a young anima took fright and bolted at a terrific pace, the vehicle was overturned and the occupants thrown out. Mr Jones sustained a fracture, OL one leg, and the hip of his other leg was disloctted. Mr Parry bad one of his a-ms fractured, and he was severely cut in the face and other parts of his body. The vehicle was smashed to atoms. «, The lately imprisoned ex Lord Mayor of
Commons last week, Mr Gladstone referring to the Tithe Bill, said that the Hoose ought to be prepared to approach any reasonable proposal in the reverse of a captious spirit There was in the House those who considered tithe the sacred and indefeasible patrimony of the Church, and there was another body hold- ing the directly reverse opinion but whethe it was the property of the Church or the pr p rty of the nation, it was a property of which Parliament was a steward, for the custody oi which members were responsible, and for the preservation and maintenance of which they were also responsible He hoped that it woul • be in that spirit, and not in the spirit of sim- ple condescension to the difficulties of tht moment, that they would approach the coubi- deration of the proposals of the Government. The bill for the promotion of intermediate
education in Wales brought in by Mr Muudella, is backed also by Mr Osborne Morgan, Mi Henry Richard, Sir Hussey Vivian, Mr William Rath bone, Mr Stuart Rendel, an, Mr William Abraham. It is on the sam. lines as the bill of last year, ani provides fo: the constitution of an education board for Wales and the duties and powers of such a body, the main object being to provide inter- mediate and technical education for the Principality and the county of Monmouth.

THE TITHE WAR IN FLINTSHIRE. DISTRAINTS NEAR MOLD. Mr Peterson was very busily engaged on Wednesday in making distraints for tithes due to the Rev. Watkin Williams vicar of Nan- nerch, near Mold, and the proceedings caused a good deal of exci ement in the locality. At Fenbedw Ucha Farm, the occupant, Mrs Lloyd, is about £ 70 in arrear, and here three stacks and several c >ws and heifers were distrained upon At Brynycrfynon farm, there was a sharp tussle between the tenant and Mr Peterson, the latter insisting upon going over the fences as the gates were locked. At Blaenycwm, the tenant actually flooded a meadow, and Mr Peterson and the emergency men had to go to the farm by a circuitous route two miles out of the way. Nantycwm was the only place where the crowd became threatening but, acting on the advice of Cap- TU ,I18' Bradley solicitor and Mr fi? • ^or§an\Liberal agent, the crowd ceased CAI611" attitune, and amused them- ves by blowing horns and hooting. After taking a luncheon at the Cross Keys Inn, Mr Peterson distrained on a stack of straw belong- ing to the lrndlord of that house.

Roberts, sexton bergde, applying for payment of the sum o ^•> cr0sl.no a grave in Abergele Churchyard according to instructions from the Master of the the House and in doing so informed the Board that during the year 1887 19 burials had taken place in the above Church-yard. Mr J. Roberts said that the committee were not willing that the money should be paid, but the Abergele guardians were in favour of paying the money, and Mr Jones, the master, and Mr Grimsley also thought they should pay the money. Mr rirnsley explained the circumstances of the case, from which it would appear tnat an old man of the name of David Owens, an inmate of the workhouse, died on the Saturday following last bllard day. On hearing of the death of the old man one of his relatives came to the House, ,ind the Master arranged with him to go to Aber- Se ™ak? arrangements for the interment. 1 he Master instructed the man to go in the first instance to the vicar, to ascertain if the body could be interred in the Churchyard, and if so to take the other order to make the grave to the exton. In the event of the vicar not allowing the burial to take place in the Churchyard, he provided him with another order to take to the fcJurial Board It would appear that the messenger Te'! rrS to.™6 sexton, and arranged with him 'hat the burial should take place in the Church- yaid. Ihe vicar ruled that the burial could not take place in the Churchyard, aud there seems to take place in the Churchyard, and there seems to have been some difference on the point between t,ie V1,ca,r ai^ the sexton, the latter maintaining that the burial could take place. The vicar had written to him (Mr Grimsley) and had explained the matter. The sexton, however, bad opened the grave, and the interment not, being allowed to take place in the Churchyard he had to close the grava for which service he now demanded the pay- ment of the bill he had sent. Mr Jos. Lloyd was of opinion that they were I bound to pay the bill, inasmuch as he was acting uuder instructions received from the Master. Mr .J. Roberts (Geinas) said that nobody knew letter than the sexton that the man could not lie buried there, and he ope-ied the grave in a spirit d revenue against the clergyman, Mr Evans. But as long as the man had received ail order fro,n Board he moved that the bill be paid. Mr J. Vaughan seconded the propos tioa. Mr Perks said lie had no feeling whatever on the subject, but as a matter of principle he would propo-e an amend mellt, that the money be not i);tid, as the sexton was perfectly aware of all the circumstances and consequently he was of opinion that he could not sustain his claim. Mr Jos Lloyd But did he get an order from us ? Mr Jones, the Master, explained that the man had died on Saturday morciny, and in: the after- noon a relative came who told him that her husband had promised the deceased that should he die before him that he would see that he WAS buried with his parents in a grave at Abergele Churchyard. The old man had on one or two occasions had leave of ab-ellee, and du, ing one of these absences he had seen Mr Kobe ts, the sexton, and asked him that he should be buried with his f tther and mother at the Churchyard. The sexton t'romised to do so as there was plenty of room in he grave He sent the purter in the evening with the separate lIlll ial forms, and told him to tell Samuel Owens. a relative of the deceased, to go with the first ortler to the vicar, and see if the tody could be buried in the Churchyard, and if SO to take the second order to open the grave- to the sexton. A third order was written, to the secretary of the Burial Boards, in tie event of the vicar not allowing the interment at the Church- yard It would seem that Owens went on Sunday morning to Abergele to see the vicar, but there WAS a communion service being held at the Church tt the time, and the vicar was conducting the service, so he could not see him. He, howeve-, met Mr Roberts, the sexton, who to'd him that if David Owens should die before him that he had promised to bury him with his father and mother, ind he would see I.hat this was carried our. Samuel Owens replied that he had promised him the same thing. Owens then left the matter in the hanus of the sexton, and went away with the understanding that everything was all right and lie had he trd nothing further about the matter until he heard from Mr Grimsley that the vicar had written him a lette,, criticising his (the Master's) conduct in the matter. But he was told that he was not to b ame, as his instructions that the vicar's c nsent should be first ascertained were S-iffirieuth exp icit. Mr P,i-ks said he was informed that the sexton was acting PERFECTLY ill-gal in opening the grave wit oui fir t O taining he periaission of the Vicar. Mr 1. ROOT-ITS said thdt the grave had been opened with the result that a number of bones, in some cases with the flesh attached to them,had beeu dug up. Mr Wm. Williams said he was informed that the deceased's father and mother had been interred in that, grave in the year 8 11 if that was so how could there be any flesh attached to the bones, after atieh a lapse of time. The sexton in his letter said that 19 interments had t.ken place there during THF past year. If that was correct, he (Mr William6) would like to know, why it was refused in thif case. The Clerk said he believed that interments were only allowed to be made in the yard in special cases. A question was asked as to what was meant b) -pecial cases. The Clerk replied, such as a wife being interrea in the same grave as her husband, or husband with his wife. Mr Williams thought a son ought to be allowen to be buried with his mother and father. Mr Roberts (Geiuas), said that the Master when he gave the order was perfectly aware that tho Abergele Churchyard was closed, and therefore thought he was to bltme. The Master denied that there was any blame at- tached to him, for he was met with the argument that there was plenty of room in the Churchyard, -tud that interments had taken place there during the past year, and when he gave the order he dis- tinctly told the porter to tell his relatives that he must go in the first instance to the Vicar, and afte obtaining his consent to go with the order to the sexton. Mr Williams asked if there was not a tombstone on the grave. A reply was made in the affirmative. Mr Williams, continuing, said if there were H buried in the yard in 1887, he did not see why that pour man should not be allowed to be buried there tie believed that the sexton exceeded his duty in opening the grave without first obtaining the vicar > permission, still that was a matter between the vicar and the sexton Mr J. Vaughan said he believed that the story about there being bones scattered about was very much exaggerated, as far as he understood there was only two old sculls dug up, and they tried to make cipital out uf that. He thonght that the sexton had done quite right, for why should pauperc NOT be allowed to be buried in the Churchyard as well as other people. Mr Perks said he would like the Guardians to uuderstaud that the sexton knew very well that it was necessary to get the consent of the vicar before the grave could be opened. Mr Davies thought that paupers should be treated like other people. Mr Grim-ley said he saw the vicar a few days who told him that only the other yveek a pau- per had been buried in the churchyard. Mr W. Jones said there was no doabt whatever but that the vicar treaied paupers in the same way as he did other people. After some further discussion the amendment was put to the meeting, when seven voted for and eight against. The motion was then put to the meeting and declared carried. APPOINTMENT OF COOK. The Master reported that in answer to the adver tisemeuttl for a cook, two applications had been re* ;eived, viz. from Ann Jones, Mold, and Mary Evans, Denbigh. The latter only sent a testimonial with her application, and she was called into the room. A few questions having been asked, and satisfactorily answered, she was unanimously ap- pointed at a salary of £ 20 per annum, including oeer money. I A PAINFUL CASE. The Chairman said that the next business was a most painful one he referred to the case of the Abergele Relieving Officer, who, as they were no doubt aware, was obliged to be taken to the asylum I on Friday last- He held in his hand a letter fromDr. .I Griffiths, and also a petition signed by many in Abergele, in favour of allowing the office to remain open until such time at he would be able to resume duty. He (the chairman) thought that un lor the circumstances tnev should trv and keep the office open as ong as they cou d. Dr. Griffiths thought that the officer's R,,HJ was onlv temporary deranged and hI8 opinion was C- .boated by Dr Cox, of the Asylum. He therefore thought it best to make some arrangements to keep TRIE office open. He believed that Mr Jones, the Denbigh relieving 4.1!

A letter was read from the Assistant Commission- er, expressing his intention to hold a public inquiry in regard to the boundaries question, and asking the Board to mention a place, date and time for the holding of the inquiry. The following PIAR.Eg were Inamed viz., Denbigh, St. Asaph, and tihyl. Five voted for Denbigh and Rhyl, and seven for St. Asaph; it was therefore agreed to submit the name of St. Asaph, and also to suggest that the inquiry should be held at 2-30 in the afternoon, but that the meeting should not be held before the flrst week in March.
RHYL PETTY SESSIONS. MoNDAY-Before Messrs. T. Ll. Murray Browne (in the chair), W. Wvnne and S. Perks. THH CASE OF NEGLECTING TO MAINTAIN A WIFE. Jane Roberts, Crescent place, summoned her bus. band, Thomas Rob rts, for the arrears of an order for 4s. per week made against defendant for her main- tenance-Tbe Defendant now applied to have the order reduced. The complainant did not put in an appearance, a certificate being handed to the Bench certifying she cTuldr^^nt. --qufntly The Clerk (to -Ribp,-f-) r. T AL_ I T 7 jruu jL'suwbQuontne 26th beptember last an order was made against vou and IN favour of your wife, by which you were'or- dered to pay 4s. a week for her maintenance? Roberts: Yes In reply to further questions Robertsr further stated that he earned 18s. a week, and that he_ did not now owe his wife anything. TLie Clerk: You now apply that that order should be varied ? Roberts: Yes, I want it reduced to 2s. a week as it is impossible forme to pay any more. I only worked a day and a half last week, and my wages only average Us. a week 3 G THE PHAILJman But vou were getting 18s. a week when the order.was made against you Roberts Yes, standing wages; but I am not in Roberts Yes, standing wages; but I am not in constant employment every day I come here I lose three shillings out of my money. wile's6 Wh" d0 Roberts: I don't believe in it at all She's only got a sore leg, ana I saw her out last Wednesday. thiI™r?ifioatea°: ■»> Wd bj- ,V,,??nIrtS: X-au qujte willi°fer to g've her two shil mg^ a weeic, but I cannot pay four shillings a week, tor when I am not in a position 'to pay she takes out a summons against me, which incurs extra co-<t. The Chairman ( tddressing the Reporter) said It might perhaps be thought that we are doing an unusual thing in acting in the absence of the de- fendant. But we think we are doivg the best under the circumstances. The case by the woman against the man has been before us several times, and we have each time discussed it fuliv. sn that have the facts substantially before us, and therefore think that no hardship will be done by acceding to the man's request, and reducing the order from four shillings to three shillings a week. B. iberts I cannot possibly pay three ehillings a week. ° The Chairman You must try. SCHOOL CASES. In the charges of neglect in sending their child- ren to school against Robert Hughes, Vale road, and Edward ovah, pointer, medical certificates were produced, shewing the children to be ill. The cases were therefore dismissed. Mr Edward Jones, School Attendance Officer, ap- pi ed for warrants agaiust the following persons for neglecting to piy fines Joseph Parry, David Wil- liams, John Davies, Joseph Hughes Edward Morris, J .mes McElroy, AUen Jones, and Elizabeth HNzell til or Yale road. 7 QUARRELSOME NEIGHBOURS. Mary Jone>, Vale road, was charged by Margaret Jones, 29, Vale road, with having on the 28th Janu- ary, unlawfully assaulted her. The Complainant deposed that on the day in ques- tion defendant knocked her about, and pulled a quantity of hair (produced) from the skin of her head, and dragged her about for the distance of six yards. Defendant's boy afterwards struck her on various parts of the body. Hannah Davies and Betsy Jones, neighbours,gave corroborative evidence as to the assault. The Defendant could get no peace from the com- plainant, who was continually ejecting her children from a closet which she said all the occupiers of five houses in that neighbourhood had an equal right to. The Bench considered the case proved and inflicted a fine of one shilling and sixpence costs. The Defendant said she would not pay, and a war- rant was issued.
øtts anD ^ummarg. Judging from the proceedings at the special mee.ing held on Tuesday, the "summer hand" question promises well to be a troublesome one to our Board of Commissioners this year again. Why it should be so we are utterly at a loss to understand. But it does look as if for the next few months we are to be inflicted with a repetition of the very same arguments pro. and con. as those we have been familiar with for at least the three past years. Surely our Commissioners have now had ex- perience enough to come to a decision on this matter, without all this childish and unseemly wrangling. We have* much sympathy with the outsiders "-as they were very unkindly called--and especially with Mr Kent, who during the last two seasons has shewn great energy and tact and organising and aHm nis-, trative powers of a high order in the man- agement of this thankless business. And we are heartily sorry that he should have made up his mind not to have anything more to do with it. Mr H. D. Roberts' criticism I of the action of the outsiders" are unworthy of the least notice—he should be treated with contempt. Of Mr W. Williams' we have a higher opinion but even he can- not claim to be much of an authority on the question under notices We hope Mr Kent will reconsider his decision, and that he and the other gentlemen of the committee, who have not a seat on the Board, will be willing to continue their valuable services in t1" terest of the town. — —♦ The Dean of St, Asaph writes to say that

a meeting of the supporters of the proposed memorial to Bishop Morgan, will be held at Shrewsbury, on Friday, February 24th.

Dublin met with an enthusiastic public we come upon landing at Holyhead, on Friday, on his way to Westminster. An address in behalf of the North Wales Liberal Federation was presented to Mr Sullivan by Mr Hum- pbreys-Owen, in the enforced absence of th< President, Mr Stuart Rendel, who wrote that he felt in welcoming Mr Sullivan he could nut pos&ibly be more in his place as a Welsh re- presentative. Mr Sullivan was received with equal enthusiasm at Chester, nd elsewhere on his way to London, where the maoifesta tions of popuiar sympathy with Balfour's criminals," culminated in a great demonstra- tion in Hyde Park, at which between sixt\ and seveuty thousand persous assembled to do them honour. *— In the course of his speech in the House oi
ment Act, heard before the Rhyl justices on Wednesday last, revealed a sad case 01 parental neglect.^ A young man was charged in respect of a girl under 14 years of age, the daughter of a local publican. The case beint sub judlce it is out of our province to make any comments. But it transpires that the girl was well-known to the police and others i to be the boon companion of a woman of ill- f me. What the town knew surely th(- father ought to know. If he was not aware of how and with whom his daughter, a mere child, spnt her time, then he is guilty oi criminal iudifference. And what is to be said of the police ? They undoubtedly were well aware of the character of this girl's companion, and should have warned the father, and if afterwards they had reason to believe her evil courses were- continued, her father could be deprived of her custody as a person unfit to take care of her.

VERY MUCH MARRIED. It is usually considered a noteworthy circumstance for a man or woman to have been married three times C °L LS NUMBCT would have been thought little I NN 'J I ROME mentions a widow who had married her -2nd husband, who in his turn, had been married to 20 wives—surely an experienced couple! A woman, named Elizabeth Masi, who died at Florence, in 1768, ;r.d been married to seven husbands, all of whom she Mit ived. Sheunuriedthela.stofthe seven at the age of I 0. When on lier death-bed she recalled the good and )ad points in each of her husbands, and having im- oai'tially weighed them in the balance, she singled out ,i(-r fifth spouse as her favourite, and desired that her remains nught be interred near his. The death of a sol- iier,is recorded, 1874, who had five wives,and his widow, fed 1)0, wept over the grave of her fourth husband. 1 lie writer who mentioned these facts naively added: The said soldier was much attached to the marriage state."
A LUCKY ANSWER. The Emperor Nicholas of Russia was exceedingly exacting in his demands upon his military couriers. They were required to travel 12 miles an hour, and no longer stoppage was allowed than three minutes for changing horses. No matter how great the distance,on they must go until they had reached their journey's end. One dav a MNRIPR t.ho ç I the Caucasus, dashed up to the Winter Palace at ST» Winter Palace at St. Petersburg. The Emperor was immediately informed of this arrival, as he was accustomed to receive the des- patches from the courier with his own hands. On entering the room where the courier was,he found him lying on the floor fast asleep. He had not slept since he set out on his journey, and now, overcome by fatigue, he seemed to have sunk into a helpless lethargy. He was pulled about and shaken vigorously,but all to no purpose. But this sort of thing would never do; it was contrary to all etiquette to sleep in the pre- sence of the Czar under any circumstances whatever, and the Czar himself solved the difficulty. Going up to the courier, he stooped and whispered in his ear, in the language of the post-house keeper: "The horses are ready, excellency." "All right," shouted the now awakened courier, believing he was still on the road, drive on." His promotion was rapid from that day.
» A GALLANT GAMECOCK. On the memorable 1st of June (Lord Howe's victory) Captain Berkeley commanded the Marlborough and broke through the French line between two war-ships, each of superior force, and engaged them both. On going into action the captain ordered all the live stock to be thrown overboard, but at the request of his crew permitted them to retain an old gamecock, with which they had fought several times, and always with success. In action the Marlborough was so severely handled by her opponents that half the crew were disabled, her captain carried wounded R I°W' R shot away, and the remainder of her men driven from their quarters. At this very juncture, when the Marlborough was on the point of striking, the old gamecock hopped up upon the shattered stump of the mainmast, and, with a. loud an4 triumphant flapping of the wings, sent forth such a clear and lusty challenge as to be heard in every part of the disabled ship. One universal and gallant cheer arose from the broken crew; they remembered the indomitable courage of the bird that sat undis- mayed above the bleeding horrors of the deck, and every soul on board who could drag his limbs to quarters re-manned the guns, resumed the action, and forced each of his opponents to surrender. A silver medal, struck by order of Captain Berkeley, was hung upon the neck of the old gamecock, who, in the parks round the princely halls of Goodwood, passed the remainder of his days in honourable safety.
Hallo, Mike,I hear you're on strike!" 8o I am. I struck for fewer hours." "Did you succeed?" "I did. I'm not working at all now." "Doctor," said a despairing patient to his physi- cian, I am in a dreadful state; I can neither lie nor sit. What shall I do?" "Why, then," replied the doctor, very gravely, "I think you had better-roosl" A learned professor, in the course of a long climb to the summit of a Highland mountain, took the trouble to enlighten the gillie by whom he was accom- panied regarding the electrio light, the telephone, and other modern inventions. As Donald NEVER conde- scended to give the slightest indication of either interest or wonder, the professor expressed his surprise ( at his silence, on which the Highlander confidentially j inforapd bin be WM lew himri' 1
